    Nintendo 3DS: The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time North American Pre-Order Bonus Revealed

    [​IMG]

    Finally, we now know what North American consumers who pre-order The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will get; a Zelda poster. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s a Zelda themed poster that’s exactly the same as the one posted with this blog entry. Unlike Greece, who get a wealth of interesting special gifts, US customers who purchase the game from either Gamestop or EB Games will receive a poster to adorn their room. Anyone particularly disappointed with this pre-order bonus?[/p]

    Don't think it's really news-worthy (better off posting it in the 3DS boards), but nothing to be really excited about.
    It's probably tiny like the poster you get with the UK pre-order. Not that good looking, either.

    Australia gets awesome boxed Ocarina set. Other countries get cool shit. America, a country who is going to sell millions upon millions of copies of this game, gets a poster.

    Pretty lame.

    Link speaks of Canada and not the US which would be a bit new since Canada's bonus has been known to be a poster for some time while the US' has been unknown.

    Lame poster is lame.

    Oh boy. The press not only get the game for free and early, but get a nice extra that no one else gets.

    NoA is failing pretty hard.

    The first post speaks about North-America, not once was Canda mentioned.
    Besides, isn't EBGames also in Canada? I thought it was quite obvious.
    Lame poster trying to increase post count is lame.

    Awesome, now I don't have to feel like shit about not pre-ordering!

    Also, if I wanted an Ocarina, I'd buy one that wasn't made out of plastic and I'd look up music sheets for free online.

    Wow, a bit late to the party for everybody in this thread.

    I've known about this for about a week and a half now. It's been on the gamestop website now for a while.

    It would be more the idea that they would actually do it, and less the idea of what it actually is. I mean, they could have given America something on par with the AUS pre-order at least. A (not that great) poster isn't even worth the pre-order.

    Oh good lord. You might want to edit your post kid. You do realize North America = Canada, United States.

    ...right?

    Check out my source then.
    It directs to Gamestops site, and it clearly says America. Since we're talking about Gamestop, then it's obviously in north America, which includes Canada, so ya - not new.
    Adding one single word to the news (which was quite obvious before) doesn't make it new.

    *sigh* Your link has another link which directs to Canada's Gamestop site.

    http://www.gamestop.ca/3ds/games/legend-of...5#bonusFeatures

    Canada's Gamestop and US' use different websites and up until what I'm assuming was yesterday or earlier the US' bonus was NOT known. This is pretty new buddy.

    EDIT: US' website does or did not have a pre-order bonus listed what's so ever and from the stores I've been to the employees have had no clue of any bonus. As someone else said, North America speaks for Canada and US but the news here is speaking of the US alone.

    Canada and Us have different gamestop sites so get that straight. Now can this argument please end?
